The Idaho Statesman Editorial Board gives a reluctant endorsement to U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo:
Incumbent Sen. Mike Crapo entered this race with the potentially career-ending baggage of a DUI arrest in 2012 — a most serious misstep for anyone, let alone a three-term senator eying a leadership role in the chamber.
Many have found a way to look past that incident based on Crapo’s long-term promise and performance in the Idaho Legislature, and work accomplished in earlier Senate terms. And, someday, Crapo might once again live up to our expectations, such as the kind of work he performed on the Simpson-Bowles National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. That was a bipartisan body that delivered one of the most honest and accurate assessments of this country’s financial challenges, even if it has been totally ignored.
We are not convinced Crapo is back on track since the DUI. More here.
